15 years after Dr. King's death, President Ronald Reagan signed a bill into law making the third Monday of January a national holiday celebrating the birth and life of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.


Here a a few quotes from Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr.

If a man is called to be a street sweeper, he should sweep streets as Michelangelo painted, or Beethoven composed music, or Shakespeare wrote poetry. He should sweep streets so well that all the hosts of heaven and earth will pause to say, here lives a great street sweeper who did his job well.

He who accepts evil without protesting against it is really cooperating with it.

I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.

I know every respectable consevative blog probably had a tribute to the Late Martin Luther King, Jr.
It is only fitting since it was the Republicans that saw the country through the battle on the side of the disenfranchised. Without the Republicans fighting hard in the House and Senate, the civil rights act that Al Gores Father OPPOSSED, would never have been passed. Remember who sent the Federalized Troops into Alabama to segregate the public schools..it was IKE. Reagan signed the holiday for this great man into law, and there are many more examples of who was on the right side of this fight.

It all boils down to this, We conservatives need not even listen to the crap the left puts out about us. SURE WE DON'T GET THE CREDIT IN THE MEAN STREAM MEDIA, BUT,LISTEN NOW....WE DON'T DO IT FOR THE CREDIT, WE DO IT BECAUSE IT IS THE RIGHT THING TO DO.

Let the glory grabbing liberals get all of the praise from the media, we know.

I get choked up and emotional when I think about the late great Martin Luther King, Jr. In a small way I was there in the early 60's helping.
Yes I was a long haired hippie, but it was the same me under all that dirt and hair. My moral compass was true.

I'm glad Rev. King was the man he was, and would not back down. One other thing....it was Bobby Kennedy who at the demand of his brother the president who tapped the phones and offices, motels and churches that Rev. King used. Still to this day there is no uproar from the liberals on this.

Amazing!
After channel surfing TV channels, and becoming more frustrated by the various clowns trying to make more of their miserable selves by talking about someone they could never tie the shoes of, It occurred to this concerned American, that this holiday is upside down.
Instead of race baiting like Mayor Nagan, or Nation Hating like Hillary did, or sqealing like a stuck pig like former president of vice for the racist president from arkansas, the next best thing to the Broadcast Channels, IS? BLOGS!!!!!!
And this was where my mouse and browser brought me, and I must say, YOU MAKE A PERSON THINK.

Martin Luther would not be known to anyone today, if he hadn't taken a stand.
That is why I love this holiday.
MLK, Jr. took a stand.
Hey, lazy boygirl.....you have to work to pay for your existence.
But you probably didn't have a mom or dad, that loved you. NO PROBLEM, work hard, sleep soundly and exist.
